Fillings

There is now new technology that allows you to replace old silver and gold fillings with a more natural looking composite filling. Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth and research has proven them to be about 90% as strong as healthy, natural tooth material.

Other Benefits:

  • Beautiful in appearance
  • Completed in a single visit
  • No filling leaks
  • Less chance of tooth cracking

There are four different choices that you have when it comes to filling a cavity.

Composite Fillings - Natural tooth colored filling, bonds to the tooth to provide added security.

Silver Fillings - Inexpensive and strong amalgam based filling.

Gold Fillings - More attractive than silver and provide for a better fit.

Porcelain Fillings - Also called inlays, this is the most attractive and durable of the tooth colored choices.
